West Seattle Weather Watch: Blustery night; looking ahead

(video no longer available due to blip.tv shutdown)

Right around sunset – if sunset had been visible – wave-watchers dotted the guardrail south of Alki Point, including one man so exhilarated, he exclaimed repeatedly, “I love it!” The tide wasn’t high enough for the waves to crash against the seawall, but the wind was gusting in the 30s. And it’ll be that way through tonight, according to the newest forecast – which still mentions “a chance of snow showers” late in the weekend, by the way. One more note: No power outages right now in West Seattle (here’s where you’d find the information if there were). 9:25 PM UPDATE: As noted by William in comments, a few people are out of power in north West Seattle, according to City Light’s tracker – and there have been flickers many other places.

    It is REALLY windy on Gatewood Hill. Lights have been flickering on and off since about 3:30pm. Surprised we haven’t lost power yet.

    This windstorm is kind of a big deal. I find it interesting how the forecasters were focused on this weekend’s possible snow, when we have a windstorm TODAY.

  • Kevin November 15, 2010 (10:21 pm)

    Frequent tiny power flickers in the Arbor Heights area near 100th and 42nd SW. Nothing strong enough to cause the computer to reboot yet…

    Interesting that (10:30PM) the sky is perfectly clear at the moment.

    Thanks for the update! :)

    The sky *is* beautiful right now.

    We live in a fun place…
